I can’t believe the day is here. My baby girl is one year old today! I am not one to gush on social media, but this is my web site, so if you choose to read further, you will have to excuse my pride.
The past year has been incredible. Watching my own daughter grow and seeing her personality blossom is just surreal. I always wanted to be a dad, and I thought I would like it. However, I had no idea how challenging it would be, or how incredible it would be.
It makes me so happy to see Leyla and her mother together. Lexi is the best mother and wife I could imagine. Nobody makes Leyla happier than she does, and I don’t know what I would do without her. I am so blessed to have both of them.
We had a “smash cake” photo shoot early so we would have something to post before the smash cake at her actual birthday party. It was also a good dry run so we know what to expect during the party. But this is a baby we are talking about, so who knows what she will do during the party. Maybe she will figure out how to throw cake on people. That would be fun.
Lexi made and decorated the cake from scratch. I thought she did a great job. Leyla also did a great job at scraping most of the icing off while eating very little of the cake. Can’t blame her, the icing was the best part.
In summary, I am so proud of my girl, and am looking forward to seeing the person she will become. I hope to play a significant role in her life and I pray that I will be the father she deserves.
